Tour of Catalonia 2007 web logo

Vladimir Karpets had no problems keeping the opposition under control in Sunday?s last stage of the Tour of Catalonia, which saw Briton Bradley Wiggins (Cofidis) in a long break which only collapsed at the foot of the final climb, the Mont Tibidabo.

Wiggins took off after 40 kilometres on the stage from Lloret de Mar to Barcelona, together with two Francaise des Jeux riders, Benoit Vaugrenard and Sandy Casar. The three initially worked well together and Wiggins and Casar were only reeled in with some 10 kilometres left to race.
